Rukiafan commented on Nintendo Download: 17th July (Europe):

I'll give GAIABREAKER a go if it releases in North America this week as well. Also for those of you who are still on the fence about Earthbound just get it! It's well worth the full asking price so the discounted price is a steal. ;)



Rukiafan commented on Hacker Claims to Demonstrate an Exploit to Mod...:

I think uses like this are okay personally, but unfortunately this backdoor will allow hackers and pirates with not so good intentions to make use of the exploit and cause Nintendo to lose a massive amount of profits. :|

I think in situations like this where piracy isn't intended by the hacker they should just have their exploit patched and not pay a fine or face criminal charges, but those who release emulators that use roms should be fined and face criminal charges since they would seriously effect Nintendo's profits, however emulators that can force a Wii U to read legit disc-based games wouldn't fall under the same category since they wouldn't be affecting Nintendo's bottom-line.

Overall I think the hacker's intentions aren't bad so he shouldn't be punished, but if this isn't fixed stat it could blossom into a serious piracy issue. End rant!



Rukiafan commented on Pier Solar HD Delayed, Wii U Version Will Now ...:

Also Damian, technically the game is a hybrid it's not exactly 16-bits. In some aspects it is, but in others it's over 128-bits. ;)

You can't make a true HD game without increasing the bits to at least 128 since bits represent pixel count and anything less than 128 bits has noticeable pixelation which makes it impossible to obtain a crisp HD image. ;)



Rukiafan commented on New Japanese Law Bans Child Abuse Images, Yet ...:

@Spoony_Tech I agree to an extent, but if you think about it the law in theory in its unaltered state could have made the depiction of children in dangerous situations in anime and games illegal which would affect almost every action/adventure/shonen anime ever created including one of your personal favorites Yu Yu Hakusho... Luckily it seems as though the law won't affect those forms of media. ;)



Rukiafan commented on E3 2014: Getting To Grips With Amiibo, Nintend...:

I hope this will only be used for non-core elements. Also these better not be used for dlc because if they are it means that the dlc will be on-disc which will be very disheartening seeing this behavior from a company which is normally very honorable. :|



Rukiafan commented on Nintendo Revenue Claims on Mario Kart 8 YouTub...:

I agree with let's play's, but Nintendo has even filed claims against media outlets such as my own who use footage from trailers during video podcasts to make things more entertaining. And the sad thing is that in my case I wasn't even making any money for my videos yet they were still getting claims filed against them...:|



Rukiafan commented on Talking Point: The Nintendo Figurine Platform ...:

The only games that did this concept right imo was the Playstation Monster Rancher games, though only the first two games were any good. I liked how you could use any of your other Playstation games and any of your music CD's to obtain monsters. It allowed you to obtain monsters in a fun way, without forcing you to spend $100's on figurines to unlock every monster...:|



Rukiafan commented on Mario Kart 8 Club Nintendo Promotion Offers a ...:

@Baum897 You get rewards for all games downloaded on the Wii U. Club Nintendo doesn't recognize the difference between a promotional download and a standard one, hence why you get ddp points on Wii U download rewards and coins from all download rewards from Club Nintendo. ;)



Rukiafan commented on LostWinds Now Available For Wii to Wii U Transfer:

Hey guys just so you know this update isn't available in North America yet so don't waste your time with trying to transfer the game if you live in the region. I'm sure the update will be released soon through so you should keep an eye out for any announcements regarding this update. ;)



Rukiafan commented on GameStop Plans to Close Around 120 Stores in t...:

Bad news for residents of Arizona, 20 Phoenix/Mesa locations, 3 Flagstaff locations, and 2 Prescott locations are being shutdown next month. I got this info directly from the regional manager that works at my local Gamestop when I asked on behalf of the website I run.

I wonder why so many are closing in such a close proximity and are the closures a part of this restructuring? :|



Rukiafan commented on Miiverse Update Imposes Restrictions on Postin...:

I think this is good and dumb at the same time. Yes it's a good idea that will help communities receive less spam, but the activity feed posts should be unaffected since people who respond to those are almost always people you know. Another thing that's dumb is that this limit appears to also be in effect on the PM system as well....:|



Rukiafan commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle for a Presence in UK ...:

Oddly though Nintendo is selling like hotcakes here in Arizona. There are roughly 200,000 Wii U owners in our state with 4,000,000 people which means 5% of my state's population owns a Wii U. Sure it's no Wii sales-wise, but 5% is still better than GC numbers. ;)



Rukiafan commented on Talking Point: The Logic Behind Game Boy Advan...:

@Doma You do realize that the reason why SEGA failed was because they kept having 1-2 year console generations after the Genesis which alienated their userbase and caused their demise. Even though the Wii U is a sinking ship it'd be suicide to end the generation so soon. The Wii U will last until at least holiday 2015 at the absolute least unless sales pick up in-which-case the console could last through holiday 2016 or longer "doubtful, but not impossible" , there's no way Nintendo would pull a Sega Saturn on us because it would destroy consumer confidence in the company since they usually consider a gaming console a long-term investment that they won't have to replace for several years.



Rukiafan commented on Advance Wars Bringing the Battle to the Wii U ...:

Aww thank you @epona ! I'm sure the game will be no more than $10, but will likely be a little bit more expensive than SNES games due to the technical specs being slightly higher for GBA games. The higher the specs the more difficult it is for companies to properly emulate games from past systems digitally through services such as Virtual Console.

Just look at the PS2 classics that are available through PSN, those games are buggier than a Louisiana swamp during the summer. :P



Rukiafan commented on Nintendo Download: 20th March (Europe):

At least once GBA and DS VC are released things will likely improve since there are a ton of first party titles on those consoles. I think we'll eventually even get the Pokemon games via Wii U VC given the desperate situation the Wii U faces. So I wouldn't count the Wii U VC out just yet.

Plus I'm sure most third parties are still under contract for their GBA and DS games so third parties would either have to release said classic games on the Wii U or not release them at all, so things could improve quite drastically in the upcoming months. ;)



Rukiafan commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

@theblackdragon I completely agree with you! I'd never buy a game like this in a million years, but I wouldn't start a movement against this sort of game under the guise of my own website because that makes it look like it's the view of everyone who works for the website instead of just a personal view.



Rukiafan commented on Nintendo Download: 13th March (Europe):

I just want to know why it's always just 2 games that are released on the Wii U eshop per week....I'm starting to think Nintendo is intentionally drip-feeding us eshop releases to prevent "droughts" but are denying indie releases in favor for their old pre-mario and Zelda snoozefest NES titles...:|
